" Great guitar!"

Ibanez JEM555Publié le 07/26/13 à 12:07

I do not know what country it was made but it is a custom model so I vaguely heard about LA ...

Bridge: Floyd Rose (there is a system that can effectively block the strings so that they do not go out of tune which is pretty good).

The handle is a handle JEM maple with rosewood fingerboard with beautiful inlay "tree of life" does not interfere with the game contrary to what I thought.

The body is basswood, just paint on mine and the plate is gold (like the rest of the hardware) with a small engraving repeating pattern on the handle.

24 frets with the last 4 are dug to facilitate the game The neck pickup is a DiMarzio humbucking in, the same as the pickup and the microphone in......

The body is basswood, just paint on mine and the plate is gold (like the rest of the hardware) with a small engraving repeating pattern on the handle.

24 frets with the last 4 are dug to facilitate the game The neck pickup is a DiMarzio humbucking in, the same as the pickup and the microphone in the middle is a simple (DiMarzio too).

There is a tone and volume knob, plus a micro switch 5 positions.

UTILIZATION

The neck is really nice and easy to play: it is an Ibanez. Easy access to acute and sound is good. The grip is good and even though I am a beginner I could quickly realizing.

The shape is nice, especially the handle ^ ^ it is relatively light compared to other guitars I've tested (Gibson Les Paul, SG, Fender Strat, Ibanez RG, etc.).

SOUNDS

This guitar is very versatile with the config pickups and 5-way switch. I play both blues songs metal, ballads, etc..

I usually use a small 15W Roland but I also tested during a period of good racks lamps: head Peavey, Mesa, Laney and Marshall 4x12 cabinet.
Easily sounds you want we obtain for a clean warm enough simply is the best even if the neck pickup (splitable) is excellent, I use it instead for rhythmic. And the bridge pickup to be beautifully large distos :)

I do not hate any sound and do not really prefer either.

OVERALL OPINION

I used it for 2 to 3 weeks, but I already love it. In addition, many experienced guitarists praised me his qualities after having tried ^ ^

I tried a lot of models of all scales and all brands before I decide so it would take too long to list here.

I paid € 750 a custom instrument, whereas the conventional model is on average in 1000 and given the quality of the electronics and even the overall quality I think the price / quality ratio is really good :)

I do not really have any experience but I would do without hesitation that choice!

I just give my opinion

UTILIZATION

So after some cruitiques on this guitar, I am going to the same SSAI today!
I then tested for ais 1:15 ...

I had chosen advice and criticism that this guitar silent c'tait of shit ... microphones taient rotten, etc etc ...

First, we must say that I board now an ibanez EDR470EX, which has a handle wizard2 ... the story is that I say a JS1000 (because I had coveted and t caused the handle (the handle that!) And yes, once you play on wizards sleeve everything seems big, bad touch ...
And so today I get, hello I want ssay this guitar, do not worry and l. .. :

The neck is super enjoyable, a real highway, meuilleur (a I got) that the handle of the JS1000! The tree of life a little inlaid drang of the pieces that we do not know much trs ... So enjoyable surprised by the handle, a good dj!

Then the microphones: Frankly nikel! Send a bridge pickup sound ... leave alone the armony Well I must say also that I board a jou orange amp (head + corp 1300 ... 2000)
Upgrade its frankly not at all ...

Then come the thing I dreaded, the vibrato ... Edge Pro, I thought it was great ais!

Voila, so I made my own opinion on this guitar, which is critical at this time trs by people who are not forcment ssay ...

But frankly, my opinion remains me the best way to know what it is worth to you is to go to the ssay also was not all the same touch the m I just gots!

SOUNDS

Tell the highest! ;)

OVERALL OPINION

Ba voila, procaine the anne view I work is my next guitar ... ;)

Jem Channel 3 piece (I doubt if the 3pieces but good)

I t comrpendrez disappointed but you better with the following lowest

UTILIZATION

The handle ... Ah the handle! Well, it's very comfortable I have in the same brand (Ibanez I stay in to keep an element of comparison ca be pointless to compare it to a Vigier I u test at the same time) a S470DXQM with a Wizard II neck, and a GAX30 with a handle "GAX" (say it right on the site I ca not know it ske).
Firstly at the beginning when I acquired my S470DXQM the wizard II destabilize the species had solid ink in the middle of the back of the neck have really gen and I needed a time aptation compared to the round of the GAX30, the Jem therefore rather surprised me, just as a handle flat as a Wizard II, but the back is more rounded and better in the hand to my taste, it's the end of the frets are rather pleasant.

CHAC is simple to handle acute is screwed with the famous heel AANJ (All Access Neck Joint) of ibanez, but compared to my S470 the AANJ is thicker and strangely my cre ca some surprise plan during the height of the handle but nothing too 24case the handle being the access to the 22nd is all simplified.

The ergonomics are talking about, in the form of a stratabound type anymore "pointy" guitar is nice, accustomed to the shape of my S470 which I find very fine jem thick, the monkey grip (the species of HANDLES is not necessary but gives a unique esthetic touch that guitar, I have an RG with key Maple 90's waiting microphones and a floyd and is thinner than the Jem 555 is also lighter, although the body is Basswood guitar is all even relatively heavy compared to my guitar all the same mahogany (S470, Fernandes Mockingbird), but it does not hesitate to play up it's just a fact.

The floyd is relatively comfortable for the hand palm mute the game can be on my ZR tremolo with comfort for my upper hand in picking the same tune-o-matic of my mockingbird Fernandes. The strings are easy to install no need to cut, alas the floyd is not practical to regulate compared to the ZR series of Sabre, the highest level of use it is rather hard, I tried an adjustment, but nothing to do (and yet Floyd is not the first I rule I settle a lot for me and some friends and every time they elsewhere are very happy with my work), the bar is simple to just press, then to place it over u so high there is a screw with a spring cl allen Just set but can not block the bar, forcing it to walk around a pain, shame because the bar is very comfortable and small compared to that of ZR, but why confine this ibanez tremolo which for me is one of the best ever manufactured in series with the Khala Sabre?

A blank guitar performs well when my friend filed the rope had gone very hard with the 4 or 5 laps around the drum for mechanical low E! It puffed quite sound, after climbing a set of nine strings appropriately, the guitar sounded a little better but still much less sustain, the body vibrates well but I suspect the Edge III eat much sustain, Ms. Branch is felt the problem in this regard I have enormously disappointed t read below.

SOUNDS

The sounds so I t deu very much friend had test in Evo Mount shovels, and made me clean the sample and etc. I found the sound pleasant, I like the sound of Steve Vai as well, but unfortunately I think that the wood of the guitar by the lime is much to my disappointment, there is nothing impersonal resort, I would say that compared to the same microphone that Team ibanez infinity my micro sword lack of potato and definition, I should try to get on my sword on the occasion. The split positions are both empty, on my S470 I t caught in a fender tweed with microphone positions, splitter rather the strato sound a little fat was there, a hollow sound with a sort of recognizable twang at each bend, and finally the really typical of a single coil and each had its own personality intermediate position allowing funky rhythm, here the three positions each have their specific sound, but it is not enough defined so that the average user to make a difference unless we make him out though, it sounds clear but not as stratospheric, the funky rhythmic less fishing, playing the same intro Answer I did not find compar has my sword, it is all the same exploitable, a good chorus deep, it's going to found a good thing, but ultimately it lacks something of the same wlohe. Distortion in microphones behaves quite well, the basswood some crazy sound in the air but with a POD XT and a preset destiny has worked well the guitar it sounds fairly well, the bridge pickup has a rather slim because its of lime, the harmonics are well defined but not enough can compare with what I have tried especially true but it's still playable Jem, in the evo stick makes a very good job in picking it as the sound I appreciate a little Malmsteenien, legato sound good he is eventually found a bit of Vai's lead in the end it saves the guitar.

By the way electronics is really a crap bit of the tone knob to react means that a substance or a 0, the volume is not far from being the same, that yesterday I had a wonderful exca Vigier Ultra Blues I barely touch the volume knob I had a little crunch and a clean his last brief happiness not to mention the tone so active that I allowed myself the wah wah!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for almost a week now, the guitar is rather nice, a little thick but it's pretty far in such exhibit in a fly box, was seen near one end plastoc a little, it is m'enfin choices Vai and his swirl I think it will be much prettier and its owner will be very happy with the regulation of micro etc.. But as Ibanez bluff me on a lot of points with their Sabre series (I know I'm repeating myself but it should be noted that the series S, SA, SZ prestige or not his most emphasized that the RG and its magnificent level finish and are really excellent instrument at very very low!) or some RG RGT42 with a neck-through. Much by the guitar t pay a new 1500euros pigalle I think 1500euros and when I see the quality of the instrument, I am told that Ibanez could at least provide the Vaseline and ointments with, because it makes even when bad ass! Vigier say that I've experienced my friend had to pay 1600 OCCAZ, and I've seen even less in excellent condition not be serious my friends pay you a true course or a Jem but vigier piti the Jem555 absolutely no merit its price better nine in a chopper to see even a OCCAZ RG series and add a set of di Marzio, because here Ibanez went downhill in my estimation with this guitar .. .

This is a guitar that has the look, floyd Edge Pro II

it's a maple neck jem
the body is BASSWOOD

UTILIZATION

The handle is very nice, I must say that I've seen better from lag model Rockline light

we have a good position, even for acute

I personally find it so heavy that at least ca me it did not bother me dutout

then voila the sound is really good, I would say that one must have a good pedal set in advance to be able to find the sound of Mr vai

against by the harmonics fly alone.

one thing we regret is the violoning, not clear as soon as you turn the knobs on the ground that has already tremble when your guitar and master me this knob

SOUNDS

Sound level when you put a delay on a jcm 800 one begins to steve vai even though it lacks the fishery sustain level I would say something is missing, we feel that the lack of fishing somewhere.

I play with sometimes a blackbox AmpliTube 2, GreenMachine, guitar rig 3,

the sound is clear is not bad but a bit flat if it is correct

OVERALL OPINION

it's been two months that I use I am very happy but it's true that I had no luck because when I got mine it was full of defects is quite rare but well
the floyd that goes wrong all alone all the time, I returned, I was waiting for another time when I speak.

otherwise it is a good guitar when it arrives in good condition, again I repeat c'es very rare so if you hesitate I advise you, it's still the foot.
as the previous opinions, I find it expensive compared to a 2550 model prestige hard but everything is good and then we want vai all p'tites flowers ....

yes I would do without hesitation that choice-check the guitar before.
